for the senate on the issue of elizabeth warren's ethnicity and what he thinks it really is. >> professor warren claimed that she was a native american, a person of color, and as you can see, she's not. that being said, she checked the box and she had an opportunity, actually, to make a decision throughout her career, when she apply to penn and harvard, she checked the box claiming she was a native american. and you know, clearly she's not. >> clearly. "clearly she's not." that was how he opened up his first debate against elizabeth warren. the very first ad that scott brown aired after that first debate was not an ad addressing any specific issues in the country or in the senate race, but rather an ad attacking elizabeth warren on the basis of race. scott brown has had a campaign website up for weeks in which he describes elizabeth warren as a, quote, fake indian. that's the language he uses on his website. after all of that, scott brown said yesterday while he did not condone the tomahawk chop, war whoop, making fun of native americans behavior by his senate staffers, he said that he did think
the highest profile senate rate in the country between scott brown and elizabeth warren has turned into a flat out racial campaign with the republican incumbent running against his challenger just straight up on the basis of race. everybody has been reporting on this campaign as if that fact about it is normal, but it's really not normal. it's not even normal in a country where we still have native american football mascots. the brown campaign running on race got worse today. it's hard to believe, but it did. that story is ahead. producing cleaner electricity, putting us to work here in america and supporting wind and solar. though all energy development comes with some risk, we're committed to safely and responsibly producing natural gas. it's not a dream. america's natural gas... putting us in control of our energy future, now. why not take a day to explore your own backyard? with two times the points on travel, you may find yourself asking why not, a lot. chase sapphire preferred. there's more to enjoy. look! she wears the scarlet markings!

, the senate race is between elizabeth warren, scott brown. they had a combative debate last night. let's take a watch. >> can you name some republicans in the senate today that you are able to work with on big issues, substantive issues that the country faces? >> probably richard lugar would be one that would come to mind. >> he's not going to be there. who else could you name, senator? >> that is a problem. >> i think justice scalia is a very good judge. justice kennedy. justice kennedy is obviously very good and justice roberts, justice sotomayor. that's the beauty of it being independent. >> if you had to pick one. >> i don't need to pick one. we have plenty of justices up there. i'm proud of the ones we have. >> miss warren who would be your model? >> two gaffes. was it a draw? >> right there. an active crowd in that campaign there. that byte, probably a draw. scott brown has been on such the attack against elizabeth warren. he's behind. he's behind when it comes to women. i'll be curious to see if all these attacks, especially on elizabeth warren's heritage, if they turn off women. in so
aides did in appearing on this video where they were mocking elizabeth warren for her native-american heritage. that is apology sufficient and should this be an issue in this campaign? >> certainly it's up to the people of massachusetts to determine that. they have watched this race, they have seen scott brown tell people to take a look at elizabeth warren to determine her heritage, which is frankly offensive to me, people in massachusetts will make that determination. but i will say this. again, we have a race where elizabeth warren is fighting for the values that american families care about, making sure we all have an opportunity that our kids all have access to education, that medicare and medicaid are there for our families within we need them and that's the difference in the election and i believe strongly that elizabeth will do well in massachusetts in november. >> senator patty murray, thank you very much. thanks for being with us today. >>> and developing now, on "andrea mitchell reports," we are watching the united nations where israel's prime minister, benjamin net
akin said claire mccaskill should be more ladylike. we heard elizabeth warren called slil. we've told michele bachmann told to act like a lady. these are ways of cutting down a female candidate and reminding the electorate that's a woman running. what are some of the extra challenges that women face running for office? >> here in lies the rub. we see more than ever a lot of younger women with the drive, the ambition, the passion and skills to run, but, you know, you're hard-pressed to find any talk about the real standards they're held to, which is really how they look, how they act. standards at that frankly men don't necessarily have to adhere to. we want more candid moments in the last presidential election, hillary clinton told a reporter she felt there was a double-standard. barack obama just had to pop out of bed, jump out of shower and throw on a suit and he was ready to go. she had a lot more prep work to be done before she was camera-ready. the bottom line is women are held to a different standard, and that can be tough. >> talk about running for office, the barack obama and

with democrat elizabeth warren, who definitely has her own problems with some of the things she's said and in connecticut as well. typically blue states where republicans have a real shot at winning. i think the problem for claire is in her own state is a state trending conservative. it's a state where people are unhappy with some of the major initiatives that claire mchas kill supported while p in congress. despite the gaffes she's running hard to hang onto her seat. this is not a done deal as i think her camp would be after he made those controversial statements last month. i think claire mccaskill, the fact she's talking about it shows she knows it's a competitive race in her state right now. we're going to see morance dorisments today. chip told akin to drop out and he's endorse him today. if they want to get ahold of the senate majority next year, they need to have a net gain of four seats and missouri is an important state and a must win state for republicans. >> how hard a calculation, then, perry is that for them if they think they have a chance? they would love to win that sea
